IFC — a member of the World Bank Group — is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries. In fiscal year 2023, IFC committed a record US$43.7 billion to private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity as economies grapple with the impacts of global compounding crises. For more information, visit www.ifc.org.

IFC has embarked on an ambitious new growth strategy (IFC 3.0) to stimulate more investment activity, especially in Low Income Countries (LICs) and Fragile and Conflict affected Situations (FCS). This strategy calls for generating our own opportunities by proactively working “Upstream” or at the pre-investment stage to create, deepen, and expand markets and to imagine, design, mature and implement investment projects. It requires taking a systematic approach to understanding the regulatory and sector bottlenecks that prevent the flow of private capital into productive investment in our member countries and addressing these bottlenecks through World Bank Group engagement on policy reforms and programmatic interventions at the country and sector level. It also requires capacity to work with clients to jointly imagine, design and develop projects even in the absence of reforms.

The Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Infrastructure department is an open and dynamic team that originates, structures and commits financing to infrastructure projects across several sectors, including energy, transportation, telecom and technology, water and waste, and subnational financing.  The department includes upstream (pre-investment), new business, and portfolio functions. The upstream/pre-investment team intrinsically works with investment and portfolio teams generating and originating leads on potential opportunities for IFC.

As cities in emerging economies continue to grow, access to safe water, sustainable waste management and other municipal infrastructure must expand to meet demand. The cost and complexity of addressing these problems is very high. IFC, through its Municipal and Environmental (M&E) Infrastructure business line, is working with private sector companies as well as municipal and regional governments across LAC to develop and provide innovative market-oriented long-term solutions to these challenges.

IFC is seeking an Extended Term Consultant (ETC) Operations Analyst to support our upstream/pre-investment work in the infrastructure sector with a particular focus on the Subnational, Water and Solid Waste sectors in the LAC region . The candidate will be based in Bogotá, supporting the development and implementation of a pipeline of projects across several countries in Latin America.
